Agricultural Law

Family Law solicitors for Farm owners

Running a farm is traditionally a family affair. Farms are passed down from generation to generation and agriculture is in the blood: it’s more than a job, it’s a way of life.

So it’s no surprise that one of the most common legal areas where professional advice is required is family law.

The team of agriculture specialists here at Lanyon Bowdler are very experienced at helping families deal with the various legal issues involved when members of the business get married, or marriages break down, or other circumstances change.

We also deal with will disputes, contentious probate and family farm trust disputes, as well as tax, subsidies, trusts and inheritance tax for families involved in agriculture.

Some of the common questions our solicitors get asked are:

  • My son is getting married - what can we do to protect the farm business?
  • I have left my husband, who owns a farm with his family - what claims can I make against him?
  • My wife or partner isn’t letting me see my children - what can I do?
  • I’m thinking of entering into a partnership agreement - would I need a pre-nup, post-nup or cohabitation agreement to go with that?
  • How can I protect my business from divorce?
